go Suns!

Those Jan of 69, and 70 (eg, 1-2-70) have some recordings with TC higher in the mix. Not easy to find.

If you run the search here, you'll find prior threads where CLIFF, LiA, and I (and many others) discussed this at great length--in which shows can you hear TC well?

Be sure to google/youtube the Playboy show to see him on harpiscord.

And of course, his excellent work on Aox is always worth a listen.

Sorry, can't recall the specific shows LiA and CLIFF pointed us to, but search those old threads, and again, Jan of 70 defn has one or two well mixed ones in this regard (Fillmore boxed set is also worth a revisit--with the clarity there, you can pick him out nicely).

EDIT: just found this at wiki, might be worth looking in to:

"Les Kippel, founder of Relix Records, felt that Tom Constanten had a lot to say musically, and worked with him to release a series of his projects over the years — Nightfall of Diamonds (1992), Morning Dew (1993), Embryonic Journey (a 1994 project which was an outgrowth of getting Kaukonen and Constanten together for a recording of "Embryonic Journey" (11 different versions) to be used on Morning Dew), and Grateful Dreams (2000). Constanten was a favorite of Relix Records, and can be found on many of their releases, including the Dead Delites series, the Gathering on the Mountain series, and Dead Ringers."

I saw TC at one of those Gathering on the Mountain shows back in the mid/late 90's. It was very entertaining, he played a grand piano and told funny stories about playing with the Dead and his life since then. It was a very intimate room, maybe 50 or 60 people, and I enjoyed it tremendously.

Viva Los Suns!

That Dudley/Richardson acquisition looking pretty good - and how about some love for that old blue devil, Grant Hill?

Yup; spurs just don't have the perimeter game these days...amazing how much "match-ups" matter...Suns also have four 3 pt shooters, more than ever before.

Sure surprising me...And yep, Grant is keeping it consistent since we last spoke, BD, so lets here it for him indeed! Opening baskets in BOTH games...His D is keeping Stevie from being exploited to date...
